Newton Pump Station Replacement




Newton Pump Station ReplacementNewton Pump Station Replacement<div class="ExternalClassD717FB5743A148FFBE1AE55F9073903B"><p>Metro Vancouver provides clean, safe drinking water to residents and businesses across the region through a system of reservoirs, water mains, and pump stations. Operating our vast drinking water system requires constant upgrades, improvements, repairs, and expansion. </p><p>Metro Vancouver is planning to construct a new water pump station along 128 Street at 62A Avenue in the City of Surrey. The existing Newton Pump Station has reached the end of its service life and will be decommissioned following project completion. The new pump station will meet current seismic standards and will help ensure the continued delivery of clean, safe drinking water to a growing population. The City of Surrey will also be upgrading their pump station on the same site from spring 2022 to fall ​2023.​<br></p><ul class="fa-ul"><li> <span class="fa-li"><i class="fa-light fa-file"></i></span> <a href="/services/water/ConstructionDocuments/Fact-Sheet-Newton-Pump-Station-Replacement-Project.pdf" target="_blank" title="Fact Sheet – Newton Pump Station Replacement Project">​Fact Sheet – Newton Pump Station Replacement Project</a><br></li></ul></div>City of Surrey

Project activitiesProject activities<div class="ExternalClass6817629CAE9C400897E2A9F443D1E55A"><p> <strong>Phase One – Tunnelling</strong></p><p>Construction on the Newton Pump Station Replacement Project will take place in two phases. Phase one will involve tunneling to connect the existing Newton Reservoir to the new Newton Pump Station. Phase one activities include: </p><ul><li>Excavating and constructing two 12-metre-deep shafts from which tunnelling will take place </li><li>Using a tunnelling machine to construct a 150-metre-long tunnel, two-meters in diameter </li><li>Installing two pipes in the tunnel that will connect the existing reservoir to the new pump station</li></ul><p> <strong>Phase Two – Pump Station Construction</strong></p><p>Phase two will involve the construction of the new Newton Pump Station. The pump station ensures water can be reliably and efficiently transported through the water distribution system. Phase two activities include:</p><ul><li>Building a new driveway off 128 Street </li><li>Excavating a 10-metre deep pit </li><li>Delivering concrete and materials to the site </li><li>Constructing the pump station </li><li>Installing a valve chamber in Newton Reservoir Park</li><li>Restoring the site to its previous, or better, condition</li></ul><p>During phase one of this project, we will be removing approximately 40 trees and shrubs to the west of the Newton Reservoir in order to build the tunnel exit shaft. During phase two, we will be removing approximately 40 more trees along 128 Street in order to allow for the new pump station to be built. With approval from the City of Surrey, we aim to replant double the amount of trees we remove as part of Metro Vancouver’s commitment to enhancing tree canopy in urban areas. All tree removal and replanting will comply with City of Surrey bylaws. Once construction is complete, landscaping restoration will take place.</p><p>City of Surrey will also be upgrading their pump station on the same site between spring 2022 and fall ​<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start"></span><span id="ms-rterangecursor-end"></span>2023. Though the majority of work will take place within the pump station, the project also involves the construction of a new, one-story, electrical building above the existing pump station.

Managing noise and vibrationManaging noise and vibration<div class="ExternalClass782D518003F141059CCDEAF1DE2E8019"><p>Most work on the Newton Pump Station Replacement Project will take place within the Newton Reservoir Works Yard. Neighbors to the work may experience some noise and vibration impacts from the construction activities listed above. We will attempt to reduce noise impacts to nearby residents wherever possible during construction, by: </p><ul><li>Conducting noise and vibration monitoring</li><li>Complying with City of Surrey bylaws and granted variances</li><li>Installing a noise barrier around the work area during construction of the pump station</li></ul>​<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start"></span><span id="ms-rterangecursor-end"></span><br></div>
Work hoursWork hours<div class="ExternalClassD4C6333B0E774CDE8EBC4F8DE33E72D9"><p>Hours of work may change depending on construction needs. If work outside of the typical construction hours is required, Metro Vancouver will apply for a bylaw variance with the City of Surrey. </p><p><strong>Typical hours of work are:</strong></p><ul><li>Monday to Friday 7:00 am to 7:00 pm</li><li>Saturday 9:00 am to 7:00 pm</li><li>No work on Sundays and holidays</li></ul>​​<br></div>
